Playing on the dynamic audience we held a series of three round table discussions using themes that were intended to take participants through discussions of policy, food production, and solutions. Our invited guests included Andrew Simms author of Tescopoly, Harriet Lamb director of the Fairtrade Foundation, food artisit Clare Patey, Ian Cox form Eco Studio and Martin Bowman from Food not Bombs.
Our Discussions weren’t the only things on the menu, with a really exciting line up of drama, poetry, puppet making and cooking workshops from Low Carbon Cook Off to really get the messages of food waste across to the public in participatory, creative and fun ways, along with the more high-brow discussion program.
The finale, an intimate and luxurious three course FEAST off food waste. Having picked up food mostly from the Organic Fresh Food Company in Lampeter, who supplied us with fruit and vegetables we cooked up a delicious meal almost entirely from surplus, hosting twenty people and feeding at least 10 more in the surrounding area of friends we had forged during our visit. The diners were led through the meal with poetic comparing by slam poet Josh Solnick, who described each dish and prompted discussion about food waste from around the table.
